Ok.  I'm going to look at a Rockwell BladeRunner off CL tomorrow.  They claim it was used once and they're asking $75.  Amazon sells it for $150.

What do you think?  Anyone own one?

  • Here's the link.  The photos suck so I wasn't sure how helpful it would be.

    You should be able to tell pretty easily if it was used more than "once".

    For $75, just buy it. If you get it, like it, and want a new one, you can probably sell that one for near or what you paid for it. Then get the new one. I did that with a 12" dual bevel compound miter saw. Actually made a few bucks on the used one, after I waited for the new one to go on super sale

  • I'm sure they have their uses. For me it seems a little gimmicky. With that being said I dabble in cabinetry and furniture. For $75 it doesn't seem like a bad deal.

    Make an offer and see if the seller bites, never pay the asking price.

    Except for the first 4 reviews here it doesn't look like many people like it.
